    Injury claim in Kirkwall

    Kirkwall is a beautiful place with some lovely scenery, whether you are taking a walk or whizzing around the winding lanes on your bike. Kirkwall is so breathtakingly beautiful that a visitor wants to be in tip-top condition to appreciate and enjoy their time there.

    Road hazards for cyclists

    Cycling round the twisty lanes with should be a joy, unless some crazy motorist or wild animal cuts across your path and sends you flying. Cyclists and motorcyclists are especially vulnerable because their bodies have no protection (the helmet protects the skull to some extent), leaving you with little option but to seek out an injury claim in Kirkwall solicitor.

    Making a compensation claim

    If you have suffered injuries because someone separated you from your bike – pedal or motor – you could be entitled to make an injury claim in Kirkwall if your accident and injuries meet these three conditions:

    • Your accident was caused by another person or organisation;
    • You received medical attention for your resulting injuries; and
    • The accident and injuries happened within the last three years.

    What does making an injury claim in Kirkwall have in common with other non-fault injury claims? Well, firstly there’s the pain and inconvenience of your injuries. You might be off work as a result and lose income. You might be unable to care for your young family.

    You may find that in addition to NHS treatment, you need private therapies to help you recover. All these consequences cost money. What’s more, if it’s a road traffic accident, there’s the whole business of dealing with the motor insurance companies.
